The project is a requirment for graduation, and would entail you looking at what I'm doing and saying "This is good, this is bad, and change this," as well as providing some advice, and possibly an interveiw. Not too hard, or anything, but I really need a name and signiture. I've tried contacting several people already in local(ish) buisnesses to no sucess. Please help!
If anyone is wondering, I live in Greensboro, but for the project I can travel to wherever I need to, as long as it's semi-sorta-a little bit localish. And crap, if nothing else, I can pick up a decent web cam if you don't live local.
Anyone interested? I'll provide candy. And hugs.
I know you are looking for something possibly more substantial and in person, but I'd certainly recommend posting in the WIP section of cgtalk. It's pretty amazing the quality of talent of the lurkers and helpers in there. I've had Sony Dreamworks, Pixar individuals and even Duncan Brinsmead give advice on my own projects in there. Just another option...
